Description

This remarkable book features fifty quilt blocks to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, some of which were presented on Barbara's blog in 2011. Many of these blocks weren't designed until the 1930s, but Barbara selected each one for the unique symbolism its name lends to recounting stories of the war during the mid-1800s. Dig into those prized reproduction fabrics and enjoy mixing and matching blocks to make your own tribute quilt. Images of sampler quilts are included for inspiration. * Journey through this historic time in American history with Barbara Brackman, bestselling author and quilt historian * Learn more about Civil War women through this special compilation of quilt block patterns, combined with period photos and first-person accounts * Choose from a variety of pieced or appliqued blocks, each shown in two colorways with instructions for assembling two sizes (8" and 12")show more

Review quote

This is another stunning book from quiltmaker and historian Barbara Brackman. The book is based on the blog she ran in 2011, publishing one quilt block a week and sharing one personal account linked to the American Civil War as 2011 was the 150th anniversary of the start of that conflict. The book contains 50 blocks and each one has a personal recount of an interesting historical piece or both, some relating to the blocks and all relating to the war. There are cutting and piecing instructions to make all of the blocks as either 8 in or 12 in and each block is shown in at least two colour variations. This is another lovely book of Barbara's to add to the collection. --Australian Quilters Companion; July 2013show more
